NJPW... I'm Confused.

For weeks, I have been watching NJPW on AXS TV and things seem out of order. The first episode showed a title match from earlier this month but now the dates keep going backwards. I was really hoping for an abridged version of whatever weekly broadcast they have in Japan. What's the deal? Is the US show simply showing random matches?

The matches are going in order. The first episode was the title match from Wrestle Kingdom 7 in 2013, not this years which was a rematch.

Neat but do they have a weekly broadcast in Japan? Good matches are always nice but they should focus on keeping all of their audience current. Matches from 2013 doesnt help that.

The shows only scheduled for 12 episodes. It's just to showcase New Japan. Not to show recent/live events. They do that on NJ World.

Is there a way to watch NJ World? I'm new to NJPW and want to stay up to date.

Dailymotion has everything you need to keep you up-to-date on New Japan.

Just apply yourself and stay on top of when events are happening. February 11th and 14th are the next PPV's

Re: NJPW... I'm Confused.

Can someone please explain to me how they can have two ppvs within two days of one another?

Re: NJPW... I'm Confused.

I have been using Watchwrestling.ch for a while (only way I can watch wrestling on my Wii U). The AXS shows are simply listed as "New Japan Pro Wrestling". Should I just only wait for the PPVs to stay updated?
